GCDS

The GCDS, and particularly the Akademy ended. Mostly everyone is still already back home, so all I can say is: Thanks to Agustín, Rodrigo, Miki and the rest of the local organization team for the great conference. Everyone I've talked with agreed that they were having a very good time, and I can only reassure that. The only "problem" I can find is (and I thought I would never say this) there were too many parties :) . So, congratulations for a very successful event!

Xorg, keyboard and mice

Yesterday I learnt about two new options for my xorg.conf :


Option "AllowEmptyInput" "off"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "off"

Still alive!

It's been a long time since my last entry here, so I think I'll start by giving an update of my life lately. I've been a bit away from KDE development for too long (but not from the KDE community fortunately). Some of you probably know what it's like: long work weeks that makes the recent EU proposal of a 65 hours work week look as a game (my personal record is around 96 work hours in a week and never below 50 hours), deadlines, more deadlines ... you know how it goes.

Travel problems

Finally I arrived to my home. I've been for the last three days having a wonderful time at the Canary Islands with many great people (both, the organizators and the other speakers) at the 1st Free Software event of the University of La Laguna. The problems started when the plane from Tenerife to Madrid was delayed, so I arrived too late to Madrid and I couldn't get on the plane to Málaga. After being put in another plane (that also was delayed), I've arrived to my home something like half an hour ago, and I have to be at the airport again in less than 2 hours and a half to get a plane back to Madrid, and then another one from there to Dublin. This will be a loong night...

Holiday report

I arrived yesterday from a 10 days holidays around Spain. There are some things that I'd like to share with everyone, so I'll try to tell a brief report about it.

As I said in my previous blog entry, I've been with other 4 friends on a rented car travelling around Spain. We did some late changes to the planning, so finally, we went to: Mérida, Salamanca, Ciudad Rodrigo, Burgos, Fustiñana (a small town in Navarra), Zaragoza, Olite, Pamplona, San Sebastián and Madrid. In total: 3120 Km.

10 weeks 4 days ago

Wow, it's been a long time since my last blog entry, exactly 10 weeks and 4 days...

A brief summary of the last weeks would be: a great time at a couple of talks (at the 802.party in Jerez de la Frontera, Cádiz and at the Technological Park of Málaga), some great time working on the digikam-web interface and related things, and boring time being until late at work (my advice: don't have anything to do with gsoap). Fortunately, today I've started my holidays :) and although usually I would use that time to develop something, this year I'm going to travel with some friends around Spain, so I guess I'll have little internet access from next Saturday on.

A web interface to digikam (continued)

During last weekend I managed to find some time to continue developing the web interface for digikam that I mentioned in a previous blog entry, so I added some new features:

A web interface to digikam

Currently I have 21458 photos according to digikam's database (which are using 13 Gb according to du ). When someone asks me to put some album in my web server I hate to lose my time exporting to html, generating thumbnails and resized 1024x768 versions of my pictures which occupy space in my HD that I'm usually hesitant to remove.

Also, when kimdaba exports the images to html, it includes the associated tags, but digikam doesn't. which makes digikam's web exports be a bit unusable for me.

The future is written in tags

It's important to have information organized, and everyone who tried know it's difficult to organize things efficiently. Lately most applications are trying to help the user to do exactly that, and in my opinion that will be the factor users will use to choose one application over another: how the application allows them to organize the information they work with.

Safety guide

This is a photo of a safety guide I found in my plane from Madrid to Málaga last Sunday:

I don't know how others read that, but what I read is that Iberia recommends "for your safety" not to use Windows ;-).
